The British public’s Brexit priorities

This paper examines the public’s Brexit priorities particularly looking at the importance of securing a free trade deal with the EU, stopping contributions to the EU budget, regaining control of EU immigration, and ending the role of the EU in UK law-making.

• When respondents are asked to pick from among a number of different negotiating priorities, achieving free trade with both the EU and countries outside the EU appears to be a top priority.
• Yet when presented with a choice between ‘soft’ Brexit on the one hand and ‘hard’ Brexit on the other, opinion remains decidedly split.
• There has been little overall change in the public’s relative preference for ‘soft’ Brexit since the EU referendum took place.
